Bletilla striata ‘Soryu’ is a lovely, hardy ground orchid native to Japan. Delicate, lavender-blue orchid flowers hover above long, narrow, pleated, stiffly upright leaves. Cold-hardy and easily grown.
Grows almost anywhere but prefers a rich, well-drained soil with adequate moisture. Water during growing season. This is not a plant for the dry, shady garden. The flowers are small, around 1″.
